I can’t remember when I first fell in love with yoga, but I know it was probably in my early 20’s. I think I saw a tv commercial for some video program that was for yoga and I was sold. Over the years (20 years or so), I have gone through many phases where I do yoga daily, and then times when I do it maybe once a week or so. Even if I don’t find time to do it daily, I do use many of the moves daily to stretch out my body. But, my favorite yoga is hot yoga. I love love love sweating all the stress and toxins out of my body. But, as most women know, we all have challenges we face when doing certain moves. Not challenges doing the moves, but challenges with the clothing we wear and how things shift when we are in some of those moves. And for me, I sometimes tend to twist certain ways where my bladder might not agree with me and if you know how thin yoga pants are, you know that nobody wants that. Wearing a sanitary product isn’t always appealing when you have skin tight, thin, show everything, yoga pants on. My solution, Stayfree® Ultra Thin liners. Not only do they stay put, but they have Thermo Control® Technology that wicks moisture away. So, when I am sweating and possibly leaking doing what I love, I have no worries. I actually turned a friend of mine onto using Stayfree® at one of our hot yoga sessions. She used to put toilet paper in her undies. YIKES! I can’t imagine.
Did you know yoga is great for depression? I know this first hand, as I suffer with depression bad in the winter. Being a Minnesota girl, the winters are long and dark and cold and I am not an outside person when it’s cold. So, I like to get up early when it is still dark out and load a great workout on my laptop from Gaiam TV, and start my day off by striking a pose. It stretches my body, helps me get my mind in the current day, and puts a smile on my face.
Strike a pose and let your stresses float away and start your day fresh. Poses like Body Awareness, Child’s Pose, Cobra Pose, Bridge Pose, Mountain Pose, Warrior Pose, and Forward Fold. No matter the pose, just let your body slip into the movement and enjoy every breath you take while feeling your body give into the move.
